The midfielder was stretchered off during Roma's 2-2 draw with Parma at the weekend, with the club initially fearing that they could lose the Chilean for a long stretch.

But a scan on Monday revealed that he had suffered only a minor injury, and should be back on his feet in time to face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League last-16 second leg on March 8.
